This week, small objects, lamps and furniture are streeeeetched out to their maximum. In steel or aluminium, their structure turns into threadlike framework, thin tubes that celebrate the minimal and symbolize a return to essential shapes.
ceiling lamps by Muller Van Severen
The lamps appear to be almost naive drawings materialized in the air, adding a playful line of color to the space. The design is utterly simple, consisting of nothing more than a bended and lackered steel tube and an archetypical lampshade on top. “Initially we dug up the lampshade at a flee market." Hannes Van Severen says. “It has a fantastic form: perfectly neutral." It is this sense of clarity that Muller Van Severen is renowned for. Just as their other furniture, the Ceiling Lamp creates space rather than filling it up. Available in three heights in black or brass.

Delicate shapes and strong material contrasts give birth to a decorative and essential lighting source. Agata ceiling lamp is composed by a metal body, that outlines a pure geometric shape holding a mirrored glass lampshade through a soft shaped wood component. The glass hides or shows the lighting source through plays of light, transparency and reflections. Use Agata lamps individually, in pairs, or mix the different shapes and colour to create graphic decorative lamp clusters.
The Covent Dining Chair displays a comforting simplicity, a warm embrace suitable for an evening around the dinner table or curled up with a book. Inspired by the geometry of Mondrian’s line work, its slim frame shows an asymmetry that defies its strength, presenting a floating cocoon of soft fabrics or leather. A chair that has paired traditional craftsmanship with a truly modern form.

AA NEW DESIGN
The steel wire structure and the perforated sheet metal backrest and seat are thermolaquered in an epoxy finish, allowing to use the seats outside. Each type of seat is available in three colors (see overleaf). The flexibility of the perforated sheet metal provides optimal comfort, including in the event of extended sitting. The range also comes in leather and cow skin, for the inside. Those noble and high quality materials provide great flexibility to the seat and backrest, sewn on the frame by a master saddler. The structures are also available in the 3 colors.
